For networking stuff, see Joe Abley and Stephen Stuart's NANOG 26  
Tutorial "Managing IP Networks with Free Software"  -- http://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog26/abstracts.php?pt=Nzg1Jm5hbm9nMjY=&nm=nanog26

   -- it's from 2002 and so a little out of date, but still a great  
read.

As for server / application / random other stuff (like printers and  
ups's and IP camera and the like), Zenoss is great -- its clean,  
simple, fast(ish), easy  and pretty -- the last one happens to be  
important for some folks (esp in the enterprise world...)
